The story immediately takes shape and sets the conflict while you're still reeling from the astonishing discovery. The plot thickens when more secrets are revealed and it quickly takes you to a world so alien, it gets perplexing - in a good way.
The air in Australia must be very conducive for wickedly imaginative writing as the Aussie author is able to create a world teeming with quirky characters and strange creatures with superhuman abilities. Here's the brilliant part - you're immersed in a fantasy world, but confronted by real hard issues of racism, discrimination and exclusion. The seamless interweaving of alien and human elements makes this a compelling read. I enjoyed it immensely. K Ninja's Reviews - Goodreads
